Imagine looking at an email in your Gmail account and with a quick scan to the right you can see the senders online footprint. Your shown their name, company and title. It displays social media information such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. In a nut shell, who is this person that just emailed me.
scans your incoming Gmail message and checks it against public social network information. The results are displayed on the right hand side of the browser (where the ads were) and gives you their information. It will even post up a bio picture just in case the name doesn't ring a bell but the face might.
While the last thing most of us need is another CRM tool to manage, Rapportive will give you the information you need at a quick glance. The added features of labeling a contact and the ability to create notes is a real plus. A few items worth mentioning are that the company will continue to add to it's search query, is working on integrating into other email platforms and soon will be integrating into some of the paid CRM tools.
The download is free
and I found the install to be extremely simple. I hope that you enjoy the new tool.
